  Homeowners fared better than expected during latest legislative session  

Nevada homeowners fared better than expected during the recently concluded session of the Nevada Legislature. So says leaders of Nevada REALTORS® (NVR).

“Compared to what we thought could happen when it started, the session went fairly well,” NVR President Tom Blanchard said. “We appreciate legislative leaders for their efforts and for generally considering and supporting our positions on key issues. We also want to thank Gov. Joe Lombardo for being the backstop we needed to keep Nevada safe from some legislation that could have had negative consequences for Nevada and its property owners.”

For example, NVR leaders said state lawmakers did not pass legislation that could have led to rent control laws in some parts of the state. NVR has opposed rent control and related measures, with association leaders and industry experts saying such laws are counterproductive, would discourage development and further restrict an already low housing supply in Nevada.

Tips on how you can guide your clients toward timeless design elements

A home’s design, including floor plans, tiling, cabinetry and countertops, can make or break its appeal to buyers. Just like fashion, home decor trends change over time, so what’s “in” this year may be “out” the next. Knowing how to guide your clients on these trends can help set you apart from competitors. 

You can learn from industry surveys; Opendoor, for example, recently surveyed homeowners to learn about their design priorities—and cost-effective approaches are top priority. Owners are moving toward “universal decor” and ultra-functional spaces, according to Opendoor’s survey, which includes a roundup of tried-and-true design must-haves.

  Association members asked to keep account info up to date  

Nevada REALTORS® encourages its members from across the state to check and update their personal and professional information. Members can contact their local associations to provide updated account information if and when needed.

It is vital that members keep their profile information -- including their current email address -- up to date. Current contact information allows NVR and NAR to reach members with important information regarding billing, Calls to Action and upcoming events. Additionally, without a current email address, members could miss out on valuable information from NVR's weekly newsletter and the Advocate, which focuses on statewide legislative news.

If you have further questions or concerns about keeping your member account updated, you can inquire by email at



  NVR 2024 committee applications available  

REALTOR® members can apply to a 2024 Committee and help shape the direction Nevada REALTORS®. Now through September 30, members may submit their applications in order to be considered for a committee member position. 

NVR members are encouraged to submit multiple requests in order to be considered for all committees they have an interest in serving on. However, members will only receive limited appointments, per current policy. Applications are compiled for review by NVR Officers during the association’s committee selection process.

To the extent possible, the composition of committees shall be representative of the general membership. While broad-based representation is desirable, this should not be construed as limiting the president from appointing the most knowledgeable and competent individuals available to serve on committees. Click here to apply for a Nevada REALTORS 2024 Committee.
